Our Low-E glass packages combine Low-E and Warm Edge spacer
options, providing insulating glass options to meet your specific
needs. Our Low-E glass packages provide better performance in regions with hot
summers and cold winters. Our Low-ESC (solar cooling) glass packages are optimized
for regions with significant indoor cooling and glare reduction requirements. Our
Low-E glass packages can be combined with capillary tubes to address performance
needs in high elevation applications.

The lower the U-Factor, the greater the insulation value.
R-Value is the inverse (R=1/U) of the U-Factor. Total Unit
Factors determined per NFRC-100 (National Fenestration
Rating Council). Chart shows relationship between
performance and Ply Gem Windows glass package options,
not including energy package upgrade.
*Ply Gem Windows R-5 products meet or exceed a U-Factor
of 0.20 on fixed units & 0.22 on operating units.
HP GLASS PACKAGES
Our HP glass packages combine Low-E with argon gas fill and Warm
Edge spacer options, providing high-performance insulating glass
options to meet your specific needs. Argon is a safe, odorless, colorless gas, which is
heavier, or denser, than air. When used in conjunction with Low-E glass, argon provides
better insulation. That’s because heat and cold do not pass through argon gas as easily
as through air. Argon is nontoxic and presents no human health or environmental
concerns. Our HP glass package is also available with a solar cooling (SC) option for
regions with significant indoor cooling and glare reduction requirements.
HP — One lite of Low-E and argon gas fill
HPSC — One lite of solar cooling optimized Low-E and argon gas fill
HP2 — Two lites of Low-E with argon gas fill
HP2+ — One lite of Low-E and one lite of Interior Surface Low-E with argon gas fill
HPMAX GLASS PACKAGES (triple-pane)
Our HPMAX glass packages are triple-pane units that combine Low-E with two chambers of argon gas fill and Warm Edge
spacer options, providing enhanced high-performance insulating glass options to meet your specific needs.
HP2MAX — Triple-pane with two lites of Low-E with an interior glass substrate and two chambers of argon gas fill
HP3MAX — Triple-pane with two lites of Low-E and one lite of Interior Surface Low-E and two chambers of argon gas fill

WHAT ARE R-5 WINDOWS?
High-performance R-5 1 windows are highly insulating windows with a whole-window R-Value of 5 (a U-Factor of
around 0.2). Most of our Contractor 2000 series products can be configured as R-5 units. These products are the
top tier of energy efficient windows for cold and mixed climates.
ENERGY STAR® windows have a U-Factor of around 0.3. Reducing the U-Factor from 0.3 to 0.2, with high-performance R-5 windows, reduces
average heat loss through the window by more than 30%,2 and saves consumers like you money on energy bills.

R-5 = U-Factor of .22 or lower for operating units; .20 for fixed units

LIMITED LIFETIME WARRANTY
One of Life’s Few Guarantees.
Life comes with few guarantees. Fortunately, Contractor Windows offer you a permanent solution. Our custom
vinyl windows offer more than construction quality, unmatched energy efficiency and low maintenance.
They also offer a Limited Lifetime Warranty.
We believe so strongly in the durability of our windows that we back each window unit with our hasslefree Limited Lifetime Warranty. Lifetime means your windows are protected under the warranty for as
long as you live in your home. And your warranty is transferable to the next homeowner helping you
protect your investment by increasing your home’s resale value.
Wouldn’t it be nice if you could feel so confident about everything you bought?
WHAT IS LOW-E?
Low-E glass has a secondary, very thin metallic dual
layer coating. This allows the sun’s heat and light to pass
through the insulating glass, but, at the same time, actually
works to reflect radiant heat back toward its source. Since
Low-E coating reflects radiant heat waves, it helps keep
your home warmer in the winter by trapping radiant heat
and cooler in the summer by blocking it from your home.
Low-ESC is optimized for warmer climates by applying
two heavier layers, through a patented process, resulting
in blocking 73% of the sun’s radiant heat from entering
your home while providing superior insulation in cooler
weather to save you energy year-round.
Our Interior Surface Low-E is engineered to have the
characteristic window manufacturers and homeowners
need most — lower U-Factor— and is applied to the
surface of the glass you can touch inside your home,
providing increased comfort and improved energy
savings. One major benefit is a decrease in U-Factor
of approximately 0.04, improving the energy efficiency so that many of our doors and windows meet new energy codes and
ENERGY STAR® zone requirements. The neutral color with low haze and ultra-smooth surface of our Interior Surface Low-E
provides a clearer view of the outdoors and can be cleaned with common household glass cleaners. No special instructions. Our
Interior Surface Low-E is durable and scratch-resistant.
NATURAL LIGHT WITHOUT THE GLARE.
Ply Gem’s Low-E glass has many advantages such as minimal visible darkening. Our glass minimizes interior glare, reducing
eyestrain and making it easier to watch television or look at a computer screen when bright sunlight fills a room.

ICON GLOSSARY
Below is a glossary of our icons that you will see throughout the Ply Gem Windows Replacement brochures. These icons
identify features and benefits for each window so you can easily understand what is available to you with each style.
SIL LOCK

PINCH FUSION
WELDING
SIL LOCK
CUSTOM SIZING
Contractor 2000 Series windows with SilLock are built with a
sloped sill, which forces water to drain to the exterior of the
window, keeping your windows dry. This unique design also
ensures a tight weatherstrip contact at the sill.
Ply Gem Contractor Series Replacement windows can be
ordered in 1/8" increments to accommodate any replacement
application providing a perfect fit and minimizing installation
time and special trimming requirements.
NEW GENERATION VINYL
WARM EDGE TECHNOLOGY
Wood or metal windows can stick when they swell or deteriorate
from corrosion. New Generation Vinyl withstands harsh weather
and wear-and-tear better. Ply Gem Contractor Series Replacement
windows are constructed with rugged, maintenance-free New
Generation uiPVC. Its low conductivity and high energy efficiency
properties are ideal for Ply Gem’s advanced window construction.
And because vinyl’s base color is solid through-and-through, you’ll
never need to paint or stain these windows.
Our standard Warm Edge glass spacer system within Ply Gem
Contractor Series Replacement windows reduces thermal
transfer around the glass perimeter by utilizing a unique
U-shaped channel to separate glass panes and interrupt the
natural flow of heat to cold. Warm Edge is one continuous
piece creating a stronger, more energy efficient insulated
glass unit. Plus, it flexes with glass expansion and contraction
to ensure a strong seal for the life of the window.
PINCH FUSION WELDING
WARM EDGE+ TECHNOLOGY
Ply Gem Contractor Series Replacement windows are entirely
fusion-welded – sashes and mainframes – to create a solid,
one-piece unit that maintains its strength over the years. Our
state-of-the-art fusion process ensures frame and sash corners
won’t have the excess variance found with other welding techniques.
Our optional Warm Edge+ spacer system has all of the
features of the Warm Edge spacer, but utilizes a new, less
conductive material, which provides a lower U-Factor.
